Banning Combustion Cars By 2040 In The UK Is Bollocks

26 Jul , 2017  

So today the government have come out and said all Petrol and Diesel car sales will be banned by 2040. Which is just bollocks. That’s basically 20 years away from now. The headline news is merely a knee jerk reaction to fall in line with France which announced the same thing a few weeks ago. […]

26 Jul , 2017

25 Jul , 2017  

As we all know Goodwood was a few weeks ago, but Michelin interviewed three legends and filmed it. Sadly the interviewers weren’t quite as legendary, insulting Tom Kristensen off the bat.
